Hi doctor,

My daughter is 8 years old. She is suffering from jaundice for the past four months. Presently, as per her blood test, bilirubin 0.40 mg/dL, conjugated bilirubin 0.10 mg/dL, unconjugated bilirubin 0.30 mg/dL and ALT (SGPT) 57.00 U/L. The medicines she had been prescribed are Junior Lanzol 15 mg capsule 30 minutes before lunch and dinner, Ursokem 150 mg tablet 30 minutes before lunch and dinner and Cynobac tablets 30 minutes before lunch and dinner. She is having boiled vegetables, rice, fish and egg white. In spite of taking these medicines, her ALT (SGPT) is not coming back to normal. Please suggest the way to bring her ALT (SGPT) normal.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • To add to your knowledge, SGPT is a marker of inflammation of the liver (serum glutamic-pyruvate transaminase).
  • Whenever there is some damage to the liver, the SGPT will rise along with serum bilirubin levels.
  • During healing of the liver, the SGPT levels slightly raise followed by a fall in bilirubin levels and consequently fall in SGPT levels.
  • Your daughter's SGPT levels are borderline high. Hence, you do not have to worry.
  • The treatment and diet going on are perfect. There is no change required. The SGPT shall come to normal in a month or so.
  • Always, if the clinical condition of the patient is good and improving, then not much emphasis is given to the reports. Eventually, we treat the patient and not the reports.
